Saint Paul Airline
title

Saint Paul Airlines Postal Flights are challenging VFR flights using small single or twin props aircrafts and organized from a regional middle size central airport (the base) to deliver mail and small parcels to remote very small airfields.

From the central airport the typical flight plan will be composed of a range of small hops (usually around 30 minutes flight-time or less), so as to set up a round trip which could be accomplished in a single day.

From the same base different delivery round trips are available allowing a full discovery of a whole region.

When selecting the right aircraft for one of these Postal delivery missions, one must be aware that some of the destinations have very small airfields with really short runways. Therefore, it is a must to carefully study each and every airfield so as to select a suitable airplane, especially checking its landing and takeoff performance according to the runway length. Remember also that with small props aircrafts the local altitude and temperature strongly alters the take-off performance.

Also remember that in the extreme North, Alaska, Canada or Scandinavia, in winter the daylight last only a very short time, and landing by night on an unlighted grass or dirt airfield is simply a suicide! But normally most SPA pilots are used to these typical VFR conditions and are well aware of their own limits.

By the way, just for the fun, I suggest that you use real weather for your Postal flights and in the simulation program one should set the realism of the aircraft to “realistic” (all controls to the right). Furthermore, the “crash and damage” selector should be set to “detect crash and damages” and “aircraft craft stress causes damage”. This way it’s more exciting and you will improve your virtuosity as a real professional bush and VFR pilot! Great fun…

Of course in this program, and even if it is possible, you don’t have to finish the full round trip the same day. We all have a real life with some obligations and, of course, you can fly each hop whenever you wish.

Finally, in the past years I noticed that our already existing postal flights are very popular among SPA pilots. Short hops quickly flown, discovery of new regions, a good justification for exploring small and remote airfields or reviving the atmosphere in which used to live all these pioneers who invented bush flying: there are plenty of excellent reasons to appreciate our postal flights.

From now on this POSTAL FLIGHTS department will be greatly developed. I intend to add new regions, all over the World, every 6 weeks or so. That should create a new great environment for our VFR flights. Available:

SPA Postal flights from Dubrovnik airport in Croatia



This new range of postal delivery flights takes full advantage of the new ORBX scenery add-on, LDDU Dubrovnik airport. This enhancement of the basic FSX or P3d programs (which require the prior installation of the ORBX FTX GLOBAL add-on) brings the landscape to a new level, displaying greatly improved landscapes
( LINK
https://www.fullterrain.com/product/lddu).

Nevertheless, the use of this add-on is fully “cosmetic” and optional. Accordingly, your basic simulator comprises all the airports needed to complete these postal flights and you do not have to buy any further equipment.

Now, fasten your seatbelt and discover the beauty of these region of ex-Yugoslavia along the beautifully Adriatic coast and up to the Balkan alps.

SPA Postal Flights from Block Island (Rhode Island)

ORBX just released a new Block Island scenery.

 

This new POSTAL FLIGHTS program will take advantage of the related ORBX sceneries such as Global base, Global vector, Global open LC North America, etc.

Nevertheless, it uses exclusively airfields also included in the basic flight simulation programs, i.e.: FS2004, FSX, P3D and even X-plane 9/10/11. Thus, everybody can join the fun without the need to buy any ORBX scenery.

NOTAM: most runways included in this tour are very short. Therefore, it is recommended to use an aircraft with very good STOL capacity.


These postal flights will give you the opportunity to fly low and slow over regions that we do not visit so frequently with GA aircrafts. From Block Island, it will take you over Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New-York states.

NEW ZEALAND POSTAL FLIGHTS
Discover North and South New Zealand, bringing air mail to the most remote places and performing short flights (around half an hour or less). Especially with the ORBX sceneries, the landscape is really great. But all the legs can be flown with the basic FSX/FSX-SE/P3D sceneries.
Some grass airstrips are very difficult to distinguish from the sky. Fly really low and slow and use GPS to find their location. Good luck!
